McDonald’s Adds Fruit to Happy Meals

Would you like apple with that? McDonald’s will begin serving fruit or vegetables with all Happy Meals, according to the Los Angeles Times, as well as shrinking the size of the french-fry portion to 1.1 ounces from 2.4. (The company considered cutting fries altogether, but customers demanded them.) The fruit or vegetable dish will vary, including apples, carrots, raisins, mandarin oranges, and pineapple. McDonald’s says the new Happy Meals, on average, will contain 20 percent fewer calories.
